No upcoming Meetups
What we're about
This group is for those of you with CRPS/RSD in the DMV area (DC.MD.VA) who want an opportunity to get out of the house and socialize with people who go through similar obstacles in life.
(All Chronic Pain conditions are welcome! The more the merrier!)
Dealing with Chronic Pain can be so isolating.... and nobody likes that.
So lets get together and have fun! I was thinking we could start meeting up once a month, and do things that are more "Chronic Pain Friendly"!
Things like: Paint night, Movies at iPic Theater (where you can elevate your legs/feet, use a pillow and blanket, have a waiter bring you healthier movie food, and even have a drink to relax!), a Yoga class for chronic pain, Cooking classes, etc.. This area can also be used to communicate with each other, brain storm activities, RSVP to the events, etc. etc. Loved ones are definitely welcome... so bring them! :-)
As a CRPS fighter myself, there’s no way I’m going to be able to do this by myself. Plus, I feel it’s important to have a group of people on the same page to help get this group going successfully. I was thinking 4-5 people would be ideal. This way there is no added pressure if a couple organizers have to cancel last minute due to a flare. I have a really good feeling that this group will grow in numbers! Before I had a chance to share the link anywhere yet and 24 people have signed up- that’s huge And exciting 🤗. Having a handful of organizers (working as a team), will also eliminate any chance in someone feeling overwhelmed/stressed while planning and attending or fun meet ups! Once we have at least 2 other volunteers to sign up as an Organizer, then we can plan our first meetup! So let’s make this happen! Please share the link to this meetup on FB, Twitter, CRPS/Chronic Pain Forums, Support groups for Pain/CRPS, etc.. ☺️
(If you’re interested in becoming an Organizer, please leave a comment on the groups page- no worries, I made the group private. If you’d rather message me privately through the group, you can do that as well! Yay!)
